Cheating On The Hcg Diet

Sticking to the HCG Diet protocol is imperative for your weight loss success. Only if you stay committed and follow the 500-calories-per-day diet will you achieve the desired weight loss. The average loss on the HCG Diet is 0.5 to 1 pound every day! However, we are all human and have the urge to cheat now and again. You must learn how to avoid cheating and minimize the impact if you do cheat.

Consider the Cost

When you have the desire to cheat on the HCG Diet you should first think about the cost. We are referring to the monetary cost as well as the emotional cost and the investment of time. Contemplate how much you have invested with regard to HCG sublingual drops. Include not only the cost of the drops but the time you have spent working hard thus far.

Next, realize that cheating (no matter how minor it may seem) will leave its effects on your weight for three days! That means you will stall and/or gain for three days after you cheat! Consider how that will affect you emotionally. Imagine the guilt you will carry for quite some time after. Is it really worth it?

Assess the Situation

When you have the urge to cheat on the HCG Diet, stop and think about whats going on in your life. Are you really hungry? Are you depressed or stressed out? Its important to examine how you are feeling at that moment. Use your food journal to track your emotions as well as the foods you eat. You may see a pattern develop. This will help you identify what is causing the urges to cheat and help you to solve the problems causing it.

Alternatives to Cheating on HCG

If you cannot get past the cheating moment by drinking more water or green tea, then stop and consider making a healthier choice. Instead of picking up that candy bar or donut, we suggest trying a slice of watermelon. No, watermelon is not allowed on the HCG Diet protocol but it is certainly the lesser of two evils. So, if your cravings are for something sweet, go for fruit instead of a sugary snack.

If you are not craving sweets, try a healthy veggie snack to get you through. Slice a tomato or cucumber with a little seasoning. It will keep you on target and have only a small impact on your weight loss (if any at all.)

If boredom is your problem, once in a while substitute a scrambled or hard-boiled egg for your protein.

In summary, keep the sweets out of the house and turn to fruits and veggies if you absolutely must cheat on the HCG Diet.
